I hope someone can debate with me. No sources needed. First round is acceptance. Second round I will forfeit, so Con can make his/her opening speech.

Mac is way beter because of speed, slickness, extremely good hardware and software, and a streamlined design
Debate Round No. 1

Thanks for your argument.
By the way; I am sorry that I did not clarify this, but we are talking about the Mac operating system, not the hardware running the operating system.

"Mac is way beter because of speed"
First of all, there is a major spelling mistake on the word "better." You spelled it "beter."
The speed varies on the hardware; but as I said above, we are not talking about hardware.

Slickness
I consider Ubuntu quite slick.

Hardware
I am sorry for not explaining that we are talking about Linux vs Mac OS X.

Software quality
Can you explain a little bit more? How is the software higher quality?

Streamlined Design
Ubuntu is quite streamlined.

I will make some points of my own now:
Linux is a kernel, therefore it is more versatile than Mac OS X.
Linux has something for everyone. It has Ubuntu for people who like simplicity (Mac users love simplicity!), Debian for people who REALLY like customisability...

There are two ways to get a Linux distribution.
1. Download an ISO from the internet, and burn it on a disc. Then read the disc.
2. Pay $10 or so for a premade disc.

But to get a mac, you also have to buy the hardware along with it!

Also, Mac is unstable.

I apologize, but when I meant "Can you refute my previous argument," I meant the one from Round 2.

My source explains how Mac OS X is unstable. In 2014, there has been a total of 147 vulnerabilities for Mac OS X.

Note: each counterargument has a source labeled with the corresponding number.

1. Linux is streamlined; as seen in my first source.
2. There are light Linux distributions, which are made to run fast on older hardware. Imagine how speedy Linux is on newer hardware!
3. By education, what do you mean? High school education? Elementary school education? Anyway, there are operating systems that deal SPECIFICALLY with learning.

How do you like them apples?

By "Can you refute my previous argument," I mean the argument from Round 2.
